. speaker. mr. speaker, i rise in support of yucca mountain which by law is designated as the site for permanent geological repository for our nation's spent nuclear fuel. last year the president's blue ribbon commission on america's nuclear future issued a report but barred from even evaluating the merits of yucca mountain, despite the fact that it has been approved in a bipartisan basis by congress and signed into law by the president -- actually reaffirmed by signing of the law in 2002, the initial law was passed in 1982, and the law was amended in 1987 which in a bipartisan manner passed thue both chambers, signed by -- through both chambers, signed by different presidents, established that yucca mountain would be the repository for our nuclear spent fuel. what the blue ribbon commission did say was any host community should expect incentives. that commitment is no different from nevada when it comes to yucca mountain, and good news. the local county is consenting and ready to negotiate with the department of energy. in advance of yucca mountain even receiving its first deliver

senate effort to pass new gun control laws. the question now, how far will the president go in this fight? welcome to "america live" on a friday, eastern. i'm megyn kelly. in a vote down party line, the senate judiciary committee approved a ban on assault weapons and urged the senate and house to pass the measure and vice-president joe biden now on twitter saying, quote, encouraged by senate judiciary committee action. background checks, school safety, bans on assault weapons and high capacity magazines, but back on capitol hill, the main sponsor says she needs more from the white house in order to get this thing over the finish line. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital politics editor and host of power play on foxnews.com live. and so, there was all this kerfuffle yesterday about the exchange between dianne feinstein and senator ted cruz of texas. he challenged her with whether you could similarly limit the first amendment rights and the fourth amendment that protects from search and seizure and so on in the way he thinks she's trying to do to second amendment rights. this was all ov

requiring as a matter of law that north carolina coastal policy be based on historic rates of sea level rise rather than on what north carolina scientists actually preaddict. this means that even though north carolina scientists predict 39 inches of sea level rise within the century, north carolina by its own law is only allowed to prepare for eight. king canute would be so proud. further down, the south carolina department of natural resources wrote a report more than a year ago on the risks climate change poses to the palmetto state, but it was never released to the public. the state newspaper managed to obtain a copy of that study. the report calls for south carolina to prepare for increases in wildlife disease, loss of prime hunting habitat and the invasion of nonnative species, but to republicans, these are more problems which shall not be named. in south dakota, the republican legislature in 2010 even passed a nonbinding resolution calling for teaching in public schools that relies on a number of common and thoroughly debunked climate denier claims. in short, bringing climate denier pr

the full spectrum of constitutional conservativism, including life and marriage and the rule of law. [applause] on the life question. it is simple. i went through the toughest election of my life last fall. i had cameras around me from st. patrick's day to november 6. they were trying to get a second or a minute to run against me in a single ad. they did not get one second, by the way. of they are in the business try to say i did not back up any issue. we battled against life. is human life sacred in all of its forms? yes, it is. at one moment does life begin? at conception. the people on the other side of this question dare not answer either one of those question, they know they lose the debate. i stood on life and i stood on marriage. [applause] and the thing that a bunch of people are backing away from these challenge don't seem to realize, i'm still standing.

of law. [applause] and on the life question, it's really pretty simple. i went through the toughest election of my life last fall. i had tracking cameras around me from st. patrick's day until november 6th, one to three cameras always focused on me trying to get a second or a minute that they could run against me in an ad. they didn't get a single second that they could run against me, not one second, by the way. [applause] but they're in the business of trying to undermine and weaken us, and i didn't back up on any principle. we debated the issue of life, and i said my opponent, my leftist opponent cannot answer two questions on life. is human life sacred in all of its forms? yes, it is. and at what moment does life begin? the instant of conception. and the people on the other side of this question dare not answer either one of those questions. they know they lose the debate. i stood on life, and i stood on marriage -- [applause] and the thing that a bunch of people that have been backing away from these challenges don't seem to realize that i'm still standing.

of laws for big corporations, wealthy people the politically connected, and another set of laws for everybody else. that was a really radical testimony that mary jo white engaged in. she admitted, and remember she's a former prosecutor. she admitted that she's taking in account the outside economic impact of prosecutorial decisions. the precept that justices are supposed to be blind to the questions of economics, the questions of impact on other things outside of the justice system. instead she's saying essentially that prosecutors should be thinking--shareholders whether to prosecute lawbreakers. shareholders should determine in part whether a law-braking company should be prosecuting. that's a radical notion. >> michael: that's crazy. people within the corporation deciding whether the corporation should be prosecuted. where in the world does that sit in legal terms? she has a diverse resumÉ. she has worked as a federal prosecutor. she has worked on the defense of morgan chase, bank of america. and don't we want people who knows the inners of how banks work but laws when you t

about what the second amendment is and what it is is not. so did ted cruz not go to law school? has he ever been to law school? >> i believe he went to harvard law school. do they teach law there? >> did they teach ted cruz to read what the supreme court said, especially in the landmark, the landmark decision regarding second amendment rights over 200 years was written in 2008. i'm just wondering why would he use his seat on the judiciary committee if he went to harvard to -- to -- to put forward a willfully ignorant statement about this bill violating the second amendment, because it does not. and ted cruz knows it does not. so who is he playing for? is he playing for -- for -- for people who can't read, for illiterates? i don't understand. you know, a lot of people out there that support ted cruz's position that will say, this is not a violation of the second amendment, however, i have real concerns because you take this first step, the next thing you know they are trying to overturn heller and try to get my shotguns and try to get my hundreding rifles. i don't mean to go on and on h
years. it was a law. every reasonable political observer admits the budget control act which had the force of law was a budget, period, but no because it was -- it was not a resolution, it was a law, which is much stronger than any resolution we do here. they have yelled and screamed, as i've indicated. still, republicans pined for the days of the so-called regular order and the senate would vote on a budget resolution that would set spending priorities for the fiscal year. republicans, we were told, we heard, we saw, were desperate to have a budget debate, desperate. let's -- and had charts out here. they were desperate for an amendment. they wanted a vote-a-rama, and they had charts, speeches and demonstrations to prove it. they had, mr. president, press conference after press conference after press conference. they even had a calendar that they brought out here almost daily telling the days since the senate passed a budget resolution -- not a law which was already in effect but a resolution. i was amazed yesterday, i mean amazed, flabbergasted, stunned when republicans blocked
of national voting rights laws. next to that story in the washington times, g.o.p. takes issue with e.p.a. nominee senator roy blunt saying he will place a hold on jeannie mcathey poised to take over the aines until -- >> and then on the nomination, they come out with a lengthy piece opposing mr. perez saying obama's nominee muscled a city to drop a supreme court case. then on gay marriage, new poll out from washington, d.c. shows record support for gay marriage. this comes ahead of tuesday's oral argument next tuesday's oral argument at the supreme court where they will be taking up two cases related to gay marriage. and then here is the "new york post" with this headline. host: here's what the former secretary of state had to say in a video posted online. >> suspect marriage for lesbian and gay couples. >> i support it personally and as a matter of policy and law. embedded in a broader effort to advance equality and opportunity for lgbt americans and all americans. like so many others, my personal views have been shaped over time by people i have known and loved. by my experience re
? >> you know, my dream was probably always to go to law school. that would be a dream. but i just take it as it comes. see how it goes. >> do you have any regrets. do you worry about the future? >> no. once i made the decision and you know, i feel good about it and feel good about the way it turned out, so no, i don't have any regrets. it turned out exactly the way i would have hoped it would. i will move forward and play it by ear and take it as it comes. >> again, to reiterate, why did you do this? why? why would you put yourself out there like this? >> you know, like the people need to hear what someone really believes. they needed to hear what he really thinks. he was just saying the absolute opposite in public. and i just felt like that, you know, just watch him on tv and that just wasn't what he was saying in public. so it just -- everybody needed to hear that. >> so you knew you had a unique seat in history as to what had been said. >> yeah, i thought it could be a game-changer. i thought maybe he would leave the campaign at that point. >> okay, scott prouty, thanks for your tim
for the business, and with a roomful of attorneys and law professor. i'm sure you're familiar with the duty of care and loyalty. it's a to read your manual and the responsibility related to being a good board member and the duty of loyalty. the duty to the company above your personal interest and that includes the conflict of interest for non-profit. there's an additional duty of obedience to the mission. and tamyra asked me to mention today my own concept of an additional duty of duty of imagination. ting fits here. which is what i think. so if the sneed business had a board and followed the duty of care and locality. they could follow their responsibility, they could have a good audit and follow every rule and regulation perfectly fine. there's little regulation related to ecosystems, in fact. and they could have no conflict of interest on the board. they can be doing their job perfectly fine. the question, the issue is here, the duty of imagination, which is where do we see this business in the future? where are we taking this organization? what is the greater potential in the future long-term v
a single law-abiding american. because the president believes in our second amendment rights. but he also believes we have to take steps to reduce gun violence. steps like closing loopholes in our background check system. that's something that 91% of the american people support. 91%. republicans, democrats, independents. rural americans, sportsmen and women. urban americans. i mean this is something that even the nra, even wayne lapierre used to support. so -- i think this is a common-sense measure that we hope and the president hopes, is moved forward on it. there's progress on in congress and that he will eventually get to sign into law. >> before i let you go, jay, there's a report on "reuters" that chuck hagel at the pentagon is going to be announcing a new missile defense to be installed in alaska presumably to protect against anything coming from north korea. can you tell us about that? well i want to point you to the announcements coming out of the defense department, so i don't have a lot on that for you. we have obviously very mindful of the north korean threat as well as threats
suggestions there. there's a number of states where unions have exemptions from antistalking laws. so pennsylvania, a number of other states, special exemption from anti-stalking laws just for unions. and that allows the unions to put a lot of pressure not just on employers like dave, but on individual employees. and i think those exemptions ought to be removed. there's also a lot of exemptions from the anti-extortion laws for unions. so there's another rico violation being prosecuted in upstate new york in the syracuse area where you had, basically, the building and construction departments were going and doing s like pouring -- things like pouring sand into the heavy equipment in a lot of nonunion place operators and basically telling them, hey, you've got to the hire them, or we're going to see to it the project doesn't get built. the union's basically -- [inaudible] but we have an exemption from the federal anti-extortion laws, and you can't prosecute us from doing this. and the kicker is they're right. they may be prosecuted under the state anti-extortion statutes, but that's som
: if the slaughter of 20 children inside sandy hook elementary isn't enough to changes to our gun laws and culture, maybe the killing of a tolder will. this girl died tuesday. a bullet went through her chest at six months old. she was shot as her dad changed her diaper in their mini van. her dad is a gang member and was the intended target. in the 89 days since the tragedy at newtown at least 2,635 americans have died as a result of gun violence. that's a rough estimate from "slate" magazine, and that's about 100 new townes since new townes. some mothers aren't waiting before mobilizing, however. today an organization dismatched members across capitol hill. the group's goals are . . . joining me now is the founder of the group, shannon watts. thanks for joining us here in "the war room." >> thank you. >> michael: take us inside your efforts today. how were you received by members of congress? >> we were received very well. we had a white house policy briefing this morning at about 8:30, and we spent an hour with members of the white house administration telling us all
to sign it into law. earlier this week colorado lawmakers approved a measure limiting magazines to no more than 15 rounds. color of becomes a first date outside the east coast to restrict gun rights in the wake of newtown and/or shootings if, indeed, governor hickel lipper doesn't. the state is likely to suffer financially as well. we should point out, gun parts company back paul has threatened to leave the state of colorado over the passage of these bills. if they become law. republican congressman of indiana wrote a letter today. in that letter encouraging them to move to his home state. again, this breaking news. the colorado state legislature has passed another gun-control bill requiring universal background checks on all gun buyers and the governor, as i said, expected to sign it into law. alcohol, tobacco, gambling, pornography, no doubt that sex and san still sell big into next loudobbs@foxbusiness.com. we take a look at the numbers. president obama wants big oil to fund its own demise. we will have the latest on the president's $2 billion bright president's $2 billion bright idea i
to a customer in the bank and violate the law and can't be punished for it. you get to big to jail in that instance. gerri: what the attorney general is saying is moving to a jail would jeopardize the financial syssem and i think everybody has in the back of their mind what happened to arur andersen after enron, that company went down in flames. if a large bank were to go down in flames, and woul could take e economy with it, what is the solution to that problem, what do we do about that? that seems unacceptable especially since we bailed them out. >> senator brown and i want information on the basis of this judgment. if they are too big in that instance and maybe something needs to be done about that, some of these banks were involved in money laundering and drug money. this is pretty heavy stuff, if you're involved in those operations and you know about it, we ought to at least know who made the decision that we weren't going do that, and if you cannot enforce laws against money laundering, it is pretty bad. we had to get to a situation where you violate laws like that cathat, y
on the number of cases that specific law -- one reason the civil case law or dhaka -- docket is down in the court is the new statutes that congress passed which produces litigation there haven't been many last year the health statued one but that took a long time to come up with to read the bankruptcy reform act was more than ten years ago dows produced pieces. new statutes passed by the congress generate. dodd-frank and the other securities act of the cases haven't seemed to produce much of those cases are beginning to work their way through the system. >> i will let one of thing that might be useful and that is i am thinking of prefiguring some memories and the problem it doesn't change much over 40 or 40 years. it's more pressing now and that it's been around for a long time and there were two things. 1i went to and the other i read many years ago that i thought were useful in this respect. one, chief justice burger used to have williamsburg conferences where he would invite members of congress, their staff as well as their judges to discuss all kinds of issues of interest
could soon make it harder for consumers to sue for a drug's side effects. under federal law, generic and brand name drugs are required to have the same warning label. now, generics are attempting to decrease liability over any harmful effects. generic companies say the industry is unable to change the product due to those federal standards. a hidden affordable care act fee is popping up for u.s. employers. the $63 fee will apply to plans covering millions of americans in 2014. it applies to employers who take on workers' medical bills and some private plans sold by insurers. the fee will be smaller in 2015 and 2016. meanwhile, the aca is projected to help 30 million uninsured americans. hedge fund manager carl ichan is pumping up his position in herbalife. according to reports, ichan recently purchased 2.3 million more shares of the stock, bringing his portfolio total to 16.4 million. ichan is said to be considering a number of options with the herbalife managment, such as a takeover. on the other side of the trade, hedge fund manager bill ackman had a short position in the stock whi
and there was this grand plan to you know, institute voter i.d. laws and laws that were terrible. so since they couldn't steal the vote then now, they're going to try to earn the vote the right way. second, i think they have to speak to the issues that matter. they have to start sounding like people who are accepting of all americans of all walks of life with different ideals. everybody doesn't have to be cut from the same cloth and doesn't have to be this template model of what a republican should look like. >> given what angela just said, the tea party has really come deereded the party at certain levels or hijacked it. how do they stand up to the tea party without losing a serious purchase on the conservative almost here? conservatives are not identical with the tea parties. how do they make that distinction? >> i'm not sure they can. i think the tea party and the way that they have mobilized themselves scares everyone who is a current member of congress to death. because they're afraid that if they go too far to the center, they're going to be primary. so this is constant threat. by the way, even
to eliminate obamacare which you may not like but is the law of the land now. is that a nonstarter to put out a budget like that? >> well, our whole budget doesn't hinge on whether or not obamacare exists or not. it is a comprehensiv budget that balances in ten years and doesn't increase anyone's taxes. that will be two important points that the democrats i don't think tomorrow will be able to say. i don't thi their budgets is ever going to balance, when they have ever done one it hasn't. from what we're hearing on your station and other stations, they're going to raise taxes to the hilt to try to do it. so that is not really a solution. what we're after --. melissa: does it balance in ten years if you don't get rid of obamacare? >> it will takeonger to balance. but the point is, is that we're honest about the spending that needs to be cut and actually the programs that need to be reformed. obamacare goes the other way. yes,ou're right, melissa, it is the law but doest mean you give up on your principles. doesn't mean you give up on the fight to try to correct the danger that this law constit
was against the law. today the clinton appointed judge in the case ruled the national security letters violate the right to free speech. she banned them outright. second case comes from a three-judge panel in the circuit of the district of columbia, second only to the united states supreme court in national influence. in that one the panel of two clinton appointees and one bush appointee ruled unanimously the cia cannot keep the drone worker program so completely secret that a lawsuit asking for more information about it is dismissed out of hand. they said the cia must give the court at least a description of the records it keeps on drone strikes. while we are not likely to see the records now posted on white house.gov there are new limits on white house privilege and that's extremely big news. joining us is deputy legal director of the american civil liberties union jameel jafer. he argued the case in front of the federal appeals court. jameel, good to have you here tonight. >> thank you. good to be here. >> walk me through this case. it started with a basic foyer request, right? you go to th
't understand the law. at worst it is misleading the american people. as we all know now, the sequester is not a cut. this is federal spending. without the sequester continuing to go up. this is federal spending with the sequester continuing to go up. the difference between this and this is 2%. instead of being able to hire 100 additional t.s.a. agents, the government can only hire 98. these 3,000 new jobs, some of them could be to replace people that left. but some also are new jobs. why? because the president has the power to move money around. he can't take money from justice and send it to defense. but he can take money from the army and send it to the navy. he can send money from the g.s.a., the government services administration, which owns all these buildings in washington, and move it to some support staff. he can find ways to get the people to do the work that he needs, not withstanding his protest that he couldn't. >>brian: judge, in the sequestration legislation, it allows that flexibility? >> not in the sequestration legislation, brian. it's because we don't have a budget. e
loans to our small businesses who are the job creators. and even 1 240*u f.b.i,000 f.b.d other law enforcement personnel. so, yes, i say to my friend who is not here -- who is leading the filibuster, the senator from kansas -- i hope he comes and shows up -- i hear him. i feel the pain he feels. i feel the pain he feels for a his state. i have a list that i won't bore you with that shows the cuts to my state. it is painful. but how do you solve it? not by amendment after amendment after amendment on a must-pass bill that the house has said, keep it simple or the government shuts down. not that way. but by turning to the democratic budget. where senator murray and the colleagues there have restored those cuts and they won't other ways to cut, better ways to cut, sensible ways to cut. so i call on my friends on the other side of the aisle, if you want to waste 10 hours, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80 hours, it is your call. we will be here. but we are not going to put off the passage of the budget. it is too important. we will be here until it is done, and i yield my time back, and i tha
the monumental changes to our economy over the past 10 years since the law was last authorized. there are many important reasons to do so, including cutting waste and improving he efishency, but the most important reason to me is the moral one. quite simply the existing maze of federal work force training programs is failing those who it is intended to be serving by trying to be all things to all people, the federal work force training program is serving no one well. that's a problem. the federal government's food print has gotten far too large and our national debt has grown with it. as a result of this failing to serve the work force of today and piling up ever larger bills for the children of tomorrow. people that don't even exist yet. what the skills act does is consolidate and eliminate many unnecessary and duplicative programs not simply for the sake of downsizing but improve the quality of work force training. that's what we should all be about. republican and democrat alike. business owners understand this. they understand the importance of streamlining and efishency. they understand t
